We report that the disruption of excitation-contraction coupling contributes to impaired force generation in the mouse model of Sod1 deficiency. Briefly, we found a significant reduction in sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca2+ ATPase (SERCA) activity as well as reduced expression of proteins involved in calcium release and force generation. Another potential factor involved in EC uncoupling in Sod1-/- mice is oxidative damage to proteins involved in the contractile response. In summary, this study provides strong support for the coupling between increased oxidative stress and disruption of cellular excitation contraction mac...

BOSTON (CBS) – A busy mom of two young kids, Faryn Savasta of Westborough is constantly on the go. But chasing after her kids would have been impossible a few years ago. “All of a sudden I woke up one day and I felt like I couldn’t move,” she said. “My legs felt like giant rocks and I couldn’t move them.” At the time, Faryn was a newlywed and looking forward to starting a family. Instead she was depending on her husband for basic needs. “Bring me to the bathroom, help me get in and out of bed. It was shocking,” she recalled. Faryn Savasta of Westborough. (WBZ-TV) A...

AbstractInterleukin (IL)-1 α and IL-1β are proinflammatory cytokines that play a role in many diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, gout, and periodic inflammatory syndromes, including familial Mediterranean fever and Muckle-Wells syndrome. Drugs targeting IL-1 such as recombinant IL-1Ra (ana kinra), neutralizing anti-IL-1β antibodies (canakinumab) and IL-1β traps (rilonacept) are in clinical use to treat these diseases. Additionally, experimental evidence suggests a role of IL-1 in kidney disease and hypertension and targeting IL-1 showed promising results in high cardi...

This study demonstrates that small peptide domains derived from native protein amelogenin can be utilized to construct a mineral layer on damaged human enamel in vitro. Six groups were prepared to carry out remineralization on artificially created lesions on enamel: (1) no treatment, (2) Ca2+ and PO43- only, (3) 1100 ppm fluoride (F), (4) 20 000 ppm F, (5) 1100 ppm F and peptide, and (6) peptide alone. While the 1100 ppm F sample (indicative of common F content of toothpaste for homecare) did not deliver F to the thinly deposited mineral layer, high F test sample (indicative of clinical varnish treatment) formed mainly C...
